    No there will be no problems using the glass from the 7000 on the 5D
    I went from using both a 7000 and an HTSI to the 7D
    Minolta unlike other companies have used the same mount since 1985
    It's a Bayonette type A mount
    The lenses you have will work just fine...

    Just remember when you are using these lenses to multiply them by 1.5 so
    if you have a 50mm Prime lens it will actually act as a 75mm

    I also have the 7000 and Boltthrower is right, you should be able to make the switch with no problem.
